Group Shared Folder can not be found in a new create user in the same group

Nextcloud version 18.0.1
Run in docker On Ubuntu 18.04,
The issue you are facing:

After I share a folder with a group, I new a user with the same group, and login the new user, but can not see the shared floder, is the bug? Or a feature?

Hi Boxjan!
Same problem here.

To reproduce:

  1. Create a folder
  2. Share it to a group
    -> Every user already in that group can see the folder
  3. Add another user to the group
    -> The newly added user _does_not_see the folder.

Also Nextcloud 18.0.1 on Debian.

Anyone an idea?
Yours, Gerd

Hi,

I have the same problem.
Bypass:

  1. Stop sharing for the group.
  2. Again add group to share.

But I need automatic solution :confused:

Anyone can help?

I experienced the same problem.
User trick proposed by @Lysy.
But that’s not really a solution.

same problem here!
Debian Buster, NC 18.0.3
Steps:
1|Share a folder with a group
2|confirm group members see share
3|create a new user that is part of that group
–>new user cannot see the share

sure, the owner of that share can reshare the folder with that group, but what if he’s not available to do that right there and then? That can’t be a solution or even a workaround, just a messy band aid :wink:

thanks in advance, everyone!

edit:
I just got told resharing a folder also resets everyone’s personal location for the shared folder and it’s just back in root much to the users annoyance. Any suggestions welcome!

I can reproduce this on NC 18.0.2 as it is in the nextcloud:18-fpm-alpine Docker container

perhaps its time for an actual bug report?

from the changelog for 18.0.4 I cant spot a fix for this.

I have the same problem now ALSO after updating to version 22.0.0. Were there any news since creation of this tread?
